A Podcast I am Really Enjoying: Meaningful Conversations with Maria Shriver
Maria Shriver is a really good interviewer and I am finding that some topics don’t really appeal to me, but many do. Give it a listen, and I think you’ll be encouraged and challenged. Building on the success of her instant No. 1 NY Times-bestselling book I’ve Been Thinking…Reflections, Prayers and Meditations for a Meaningful Life, Maria Shriver continues to explore the life topics, issues, and ideas that we’re all thinking about.
A Good Book that Really Made Me Think: Doing Life with Your Adult Children: Keep Your Mouth Shut and the Welcome Mat Out
In Doing Life with Your Adult Children, parenting expert Jim Burns helps you navigate one of the richest and most challenging seasons of parenting. Speaking from his own personal and professional experience, Burns offers practical answers to questions such as these:
Is it OK to give advice to my grown child?
What’s the difference between enabling and helping?
What boundaries should I have if my child moves back home?
What do I do when my child doesn’t seem to be maturing into adulthood?
How do I relate to my grown child’s significant other?
What does it mean to have healthy financial boundaries?
How can I support my grown children when I don’t support their values?
My New Favorite on Netflix Series: Somebody Feed Phil
Put a New York, Jewish film television writer in the most unique places, like Greeneville, Mississippi, and watch a great interaction with people and visit some extraordinary places to eat. I love this show. Especially the episode in the Mississippi Delta.
Have You Tried Wendy’s Breakfast? You Really Should
This historically burger-only chain broke out breakfast last year, and I was slow to the party. I saw the pics and ads, but just couldn’t imagine it being good. If you are a sausage biscuit specialist, you really need to get past a square patty and go for the sausage biscuit with cheese. It really is so unhealthy and so stinking delicious. You might change your morning routine.
A Quote from James Clear
“School requires you to learn about things after the answer has already been decided. Life requires you to learn about things while the answer is in the process of being decided.”
Five years from now, you’ll be the same person you are today, other than the books you read, the places you go, and the people you meet.
